I have just gotten home from a vacation in Calgary. My mom and dad and I went to visit my sister, Jackie and her boyfriend, Brian. They moved to Calgary in the fall. Jackie is a speech therapist and Brian does computer animation. I really like their apartment. There is lots of room for me to stay when I visit.
Calgary is a nice city. We also saw lots of places around there. My dad, Brian and I went skiing at Lake Louise. Brian was snowboarding but Dad and I skied. It is a really, really big mountain.
That is the biggest mountain I have skied on so far. I did not take my own skis and boots though and I was not comfortable in the rental ones. Next time, I am taking my own.We took a gondola up the mountain. That was different. It is all closed in and six people can fit in it.
It was warm when we were there and we had lunch outside without our coats on.
We also got to see Banff and Canmore and they are really pretty. We saw a deer and I got very close to it. The mountains are all around the towns. In the summer, we are going back and staying in Canmore. I hope I get to see some more animals.
We went to a Calgary Flames game. They were playing Boston and I cheered for Calgary. Calgary won 4-3 in overtime. It was a great game.
We celebrated Jackie’s birthday, even though it is not until March. We took presents out to Calgary and we went out for a nice dinner. We went to a restaurant where we had a table that was off on its own so it was really nice.
I loved seeing Jackie and Brian. I had not seen them since Christmas. We played games and had a nice visit but I was sad when we had to leave.
Be back in the summer, Calgary!
